Is being a neat freak considered an obsessive compulsive?
It depends on how much of a neat freak the person is. if they can't sleep, eat, work, leave the house, or function normally until every single thing is in its specified place I guess they may have OCD.
Being neat and tidy is a good thing, unless you find that it's taking over your life, or becoming something that negatively affects your mood when things aren't exactly how you want them.
It would depend on how much the need for neatness controls the person rather then the person controlling the neatness need. An obsessive compulsive person has little control over the wave of need that comes over them to complete their task.
I don't think so. Some people just feel better when things are in order and untidiness bothers them a lot.
You used the word " freak" though which would sort of indicate that their behavior is out of control which could indicate OCD.
As others have mentioned, it really depends on how over the top they are about being neat and clean. If they can't let it go and are continuously tidying up the same area over and over then that could be OCD.
A neat freak may insist that thier home or workspace is clean and tidy whereas someone with OCD will clean their home or workspace repeatedly even though they're already clean and neat.
I would say yes, definitely. When you eat sleep and breathe cleaning and never relax or do anything else, it is OCD.
